But even expert mastering engineers can only accomplish so much, and it’s largely dependent on the raw materials they’re given to work… View this story

    Courtesy of Omega Studios.   Mastering done well will prepare mixes to sound good on any variety of playback systems. Planning on having your music played on the radio?

The mastering engineer can’t be expected to work miracles. Remember, garbage in = garbage out. Songs improperly handled in the mix process can prevent the… View this story

    This article is provided by Bobby Owsinski.   When I wrote The Mixing Engineer’s Handbook, I was lucky enough to interview the Godfather of recording engineers, Bruce Swedien.

I’ll take that a step further and I’ll say it’s never the… View this story
